Candice Warner has revealed that the Adelaide Oval cricket fans hit her with a wave of abuse when she was with her daughters in December and have since been in touch to apologize.

The mother of three, 37, was hit with a deluge of foul language as she watched husband David Warner in the second test against the West Indies last month.

At the time, she called the offenders “weak” and “gutsy” because she said it made her unsafe at competitions.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Candice explained, “I went into mommy mode thinking, ‘I’m going to confront these bullies, even if it’s a group of men.’ We too can have a voice and stand up for ourselves.”

She added that her eight-year-old daughter Ivy saw that as soon as the men were confronted, they backed off, later reaching out to her online to apologize for their “rude partner.”

‘I can be confrontational, but I don’t look for that. But at certain times, like when I’m with my daughters and people try to bully me as a woman or talk over me, it’s my job as a mom to my girls to practice what I preach,” she explained.

“When we walked past a huge group of people, it was about a group of five or six guys who decided to do that [hurl abuse],” she told the radio show Triple M Summer Breakfast.

“They were extreme, fair, and threw vile insults at me.

“So I kept walking and then I stopped and looked around at this group of men — and it was one man in particular.

“They laughed and they pointed and they thought what they were doing was okay.

So I decided to confront these guys. I didn’t have to, but with my girls in my hand I thought it was very important to confront them.

“Because for us, my actions should reflect the messages I give to my children.”

Candice said the group’s reaction when she confronted them was telling.

“Like any group of men who have been drinking, they were weak, they were cowardly, they wouldn’t admit what they were doing, and the man who shouted this abuse hid behind his friend.

“I just said, ‘Do you feel okay trying to intimidate me, belittle me, embarrass me in front of my kids? You obviously don’t have kids of your own, that’s not okay. It’s not okay to bully someone, it’s not okay to make fun of other people.”

“The sad thing is, at a time when we’re trying to encourage more women, more young girls to participate in sports, to go to sports, I’m starting to feel now that it’s not safe for me and my children to go to sports. and support their father.’

Candice said it was equally disappointing that no one in the crowd defended them or even checked on their well-being after the shocking attack.

“What really disappointed me was one, the fact that they thought it was funny, two that they couldn’t admit their mistake, but the fact that in a packed stadium, when they could clearly see a mother with two children in distress, my girls were upset, not a single person came to my rescue. Not one,’ she said.

“That night I went to my Instagram page and a guy who was in that group said, ‘I just want to let you know that unfortunately I was just with the group that said horrible things to you at Adelaide Oval about 15 minutes ago.

“I didn’t say anything, but I didn’t speak up either, so I’m really sorry about that and I’m sorry he said what he said. I know this doesn’t make it right, but I just wanted to say sorry.”

“I went to search his page and he has a child, he also has a daughter.

“With my husband away so much, I’m essentially the mother and father of these girls.

“I don’t allow my daughters to see their mother being bullied, harassed, that’s not what I stand for.”
